I HAVE NEVER HAD THE CHANCE TO MEET THE LEGEND, NOR YET TO OWN A REAL SHELBY. I OWN A 65 TRIBUTE. I HEARD THE NEWS FROM A STRANGER IN ANOTHER CAR WHO NOTICED MY TRIBUTE, TOLD ME THOSE HORRIBLE 3 WORDS"CARROLL SHELBY DIED!'. I JUST FINNISHED MY LAST CLINICAL DAY IN THE X-RAY PROGRAM AND FELT REALLY GOOD UNTIL THAT WAS POINTED OUT TO ME. NEATTLESS TO SAY MY DAY WENT FROM JOY TO GRIM. MY DEEPEST SYMPATHYS GO OUT TO HIS FAMILY, SAI, AND ALL HIS FRIENDS. EVEN THOUGH I NEVER MET HIM, BOUGHT A SHELBY, NOR EVEN HAVE A SIGNATURE WITH A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHINTICITY, I WAS ALLWAYS PROUD TO AT LEAST OWN A TRIBUTE AND SHARE THE HEART FOR THE SHELBY BRAND WITH COUNTLESS OTHERS. I USED TO FEEL A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED THAT ITS A TRIBUTE OR MORE COMMONLY LABLED AS A "CLONE". AS I LOOK AND DRIVE MY CAR TODAY, THE WORD TRIBUTE HAS A WHOLE NEW MEANING. THE TRIBUTE IS NOW MENT TO SHOW HONER AND TO REPRESENT WHAT WAS ONCE ONE OF THE GREATEST AMERICAN RACE/STREET CARS TO HIT THE TRACK AND THE STREET BACK IN THE DAY. A CAR THAT WAS ORIGINALLY BUILT FOR A SECRETARY, MR. SHELBY MADE INTO A MONSTER. SO THANK YOU MR. SHELBY, I AM HONERED TO KEEP DRIVING MY TRIBUTE AS A DD SO PEOPLE CAN SEE AND HEAR WHAT IT WAS LIKE BACK IN THE DAY. I WILL ALLWAYS KEEP PREACHING THE SHELBY GOSPAL THAT I USUALLY DO, HINTING PEOPLE TO CHECK OUT THE SHELBY PRODUCTS AND TO JOIN A LITTLE CAR CLUB CALLED TEAM SHELBY. MAY WE ALL KEEP HIS FOUNDATION ALIVE, BECAUSE GOD KNOWS THERE ARE A LOT OF CHILDREN OUT THERE THAT STILL NEED HELP. AS A SIDE NOTE, I HOPE MR. SHELBY IS REUNITED WITH HIS FATHER, LOOKING DOWN ON THE WORLD AS HIS FATHER PATS HIM ON THE BACK AND TELLS HIM "I AM PROUD OF WHAT YOU HAVE DONE,AND WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO TAKE ME FOR A RIDE?" - LIVES MAY NOT LIVE FOREVER, BUT LENGENDS CAN! :salute:

Great post... I never got to meet him either. Was hoping I would at this year's Bash. It just wasn't meant to be... :(

 

I'm sure your passion would have made Mr. Shelby proud. :superhero:

 

It was a pleasure meeting you this year too. And would never call your car a clone!

 

Just wish I could remember your name... :doh:
